The first thing that struck me when I first contacted Randolfo was how fast he returned my inquiries ,and the great care he took in making sure all was in order. This was our first trip to Brazil, Ouro Preto was our third city. We were meeting family in Sao Paulo,then traveling to Rio to meet more family,before traveling on to Randolfos home. Ouro Preto is a UNESCO world heretage site and from the minute you enter the city it becomes abundently clear. Out side of Europe I have never seen a more beatiful,quaint city that is more like a village. With its little shops,bakeries,restaurants and more all winding through cobblestone streets and alleys. There are 13 beautiful churchs covering the hills of this one time mining city. We were there the week before Easter, and every night a procession was held through the streets. Randolfos' home is away from the ''tourist section'' in the middle of the local peoples shoping,banking and markets. Many fine restaurants were an easy stroll from our front door.The home itself is 200 years old but amazing place. Modern convieniances with old charm,and antiques! A wonderful private courtyard, with steps up to a setting area with a wonderful view especially at night.Randolfo is a true gentlemen and a pleaure to meet. We will return To wondeful Ouro Preto and Randolfos home.
